Well noted Fernando! and I have always thought the simile's used by him and several others for marks fascinating , 'very Rorschach'
cogwheels, twig, hogsback........the name game seldom touched in the discussions on edged weapons over terms they are called by.

Mann's catalog is fantastic, and one of the most valuable references I have ever bought.
